What is the Norwegian word for facepalm?
We're a Norwegian company that just found a US company stole our name/logo. Help.
I think the title was self-explanatory. We are a small Norwegian company and while on LinkedIn today we noticed that there is a company with a very similar name, within our industry, and literally the same logo (down to the color and all). On their website they were copyrighted in 2020 and we have been around since 2017. Do we have any legal action? What are we supposed to do? Kind of a bummer since we are planning to internationalize this fall and now we have found issue.
Thanks in advance for listening.
Edit: really, thanks for all the advice. We have scheduled a consultation with a US based attorney tomorrow. We might also try to send a kindly worded letter asking them to change their logo. Will update :-)

In 1892 the US Army chose the Norwegian Krag-Jorgensen as its new service rifle, causing outrage from American companies. By 1907 it was replaced ostensibly over its poor performance in the war with Spain. Was this true or an exaggeration in order to replace the Krag with an American design?
The US Army adopted the Krag-Jorgensen in 1892 after holding a competition in which it beat out several other domestic and foreign designs (including several entered by Mauser.)After the competition, two US designers sued the US government over the selection forcing a review of the testing. Once again the Krag won the competition and was confirmed as the selection.
Fast forward to 1898 and the American operation to capture the city of Santiago de Cuba from its Spanish defenders. The outnumbered Spanish were dug in and well fortified on the high ground outside of the city. Most famously atop San Juan and Kettle Hill. The US Army took the Spanish positions following a frontal assault and suffered high casualties.
An Army board of investigation concluded that the high casualties were the result of the Spanish Mauser rifles being far superior to the Krag-Jorgensens carried by US soldiers. While most of the regular US soldiers were armed with Krags many were not. Indeed, the *Buffalo So

Police in Norwegian city looking for help from Tesla owners with sentry mode to solve a crime
After an arson attempt on the mayors house in a city in Norway, the police have asked Tesla owners who may have been parked in the area to come forward. Not because they are suspects, but because the police are hoping sentry mode might have gotten footage of whoever was involved.
Just thought that was an interesting approach by law enforcement, and due to the high amount of Teslas here, they might actually get lucky.
